It seems actress Meagan Good has a new hit on her hands. The new TV show she is starring in, Deception, pulled in respectable ratings on its debut and helped NBC win the first Monday of 2013. According to EUR, the season premiere of the drama drew in 5.6 million viewers.
In the new drama, Good plays a San Francisco police detective trying to solve the murder of her socialite best friend. Good has appeared on a variety of TV shows but never starred in one. So this ratings news will just confirm she can carry a show.
Good told Vibe shes ready for the comparison with Scandal, another TV drama with an African-American actress in the lead role. But she says the comparisons stop there. “[I]t’s a completely different story line and it has totally different characters. There are many different things happening with all of the characters on the show,” she tells the magazine.
In a show of support, Kerry Washington sent her congrats (via Twitter) to Good over the ratings success. Indeed, it’s great to see these two women encouraging and supporting each other when so often we hear about jealousy and backbiting. Kudos ladies!
But will Deception become as popular as Scandal? Did you watch?
